taxes taken out of the pockets of hardworking american families, more government spending which adds to the trillions of dollars in debt that will be handed down to the next generation. our friends on the other side of the aisle talk about a balanced approach, but they refuse to even balance their own budget. our vision calls for a stop to washington's failed policies and reckless spending. it says american families and small businesses understand you can't spend more than you take in. you need to balance your budget, and it's time for washington to do the same. this vision seeks to protect the things that we value most, to keep the promises we made to our seniors, to our veterans. i'm the son of a u.s. marine. while at the same time allowing us to leave a better future for our kids and our grandkids, that's the vision i want to work toward and that's why i'm proud to support the house budget committee's proposal which we'll be voting on later this week. this isn't about passing a budget for one year, just one time. this is about creating lasting solutions that help grow our economy
organizations that do competency training and in many cases have partnered with the federal government and has tripled in size since the affordable care act at hhs has been interested in making sure those young starting out providers have the opportunity to get cultural competency training. many trainers do that in various parts of the country. another major resources the joint commission. my parents are health care providers, so why not all about sometimes a little bit of attention between the standards set out and how providers feel they are actually equipped to meet the standards. when the commission establishes new standards that could nondiscrimination on the basis of orientation identity started a project to make cultural competency materials were widely available so clinicians thought that they have the tools to make that change. there's a monograph from the joint commission that pulls together resources for mayra has mentioned for the others. >> hi, i work with whitman walker held and i'm happy to say they were often the anti-cascade remedy. here we do to a thick work in the community.
responsibility for security to the afghan government. chief washington correspondent james rosen joins me live now. james, bring us up to date. >> reporter: good morning. every leader between u.s. leaders and hamid karzai seems to be fraught with tension and this one is no different. aides say secretary kerry's talks will not dwell on the karzai's allegations that the u.s. and taliban are conspiring to weaken the afghan nation. rather they will discuss security concerns as the u.s. and nato mission in afghanistan winds down over the next 29 months and the need for transparency and fairness in the upcoming elections. for the first time in 12 years hamid karzai will not appear on the ballot. over the weekend jon mentioned secretary kerry met with another leader that. iraqi's leader, nouriel malaki. he wants iran to stop using iraqi airspace to deliver foreign fighters to the fighters and the regime in damascus. >> may made it clear members of congress and people in america are increasingly watching what iraq is doing and wondering how it is that a partner in the efforts for democracy and a partn
. >> shepard: this is the fox report. tonight, imagine the government suddenly takes your money from your bank account as a tax. tonight, the plan in one country to do just that and the shock felt around the world. plus, campus shooting plot foiled. tonight, guns, bombs and suicide at one of the biggest universities in america. late night panic and fear on campus. >> the cops had guns and were telling everyone to run. >> shepard: now the suspect is dead. why did he have all the weapons and explosives? tonight, investigators dig into the deadly dorm room drama. and a couple of dare devils do a skyscraper fly by. with nothing more than a pair of wings but first from fox this monday night, police are now saying this could have been a disaster. hundreds of students had the one of the largest universities in our nation evacuated after report of a man with a gun on campus. but there was so much more. when police entered the suspect's dorm room, they found him dead with a pistol and an assault rifle. and a bagful of homemade bombs. and investigators say it now appears to them the suspect was planning
how government raises and spends money. >> wow. >> just 19% support the way congressional republicans are dealing with it. and it was nearly split. 47% sided with the president, 46% sided with republicans, and i wonder, joe, if this is at least inspiration enough for them to just get a deal. is anyone going to get worse than this? really? why can't they at least get something done. >>> i think politically the pressure is more on the president for this reason. you go -- you ask somebody -- it's kind of like lawyers. i found that everybody hated lawyers, right? >> yep. everybody loves their own lawyer. you should have seen what she did in court. man, let me give you my lawyer's number. it's the same thing with congressmen. everybody hates congressmen, but hey, my guy, my woman, they go up there and boy they fight. so, again, you've got to put yourself in the position of a congressman looking at 31% approval rating going, yeah, that's fine. i'm saying that 74%, the words of dire straits, you know, i got a daytime job, i'm doing all right. i think the pressure when you look at these numbe
and at the end start doing law enforcement when the government declared catastrophe and the president gave us the authority to do that. so we move the army inland, next the navy in the coastal communities and in san feir fernandes island and doing an airlift to the most affected area. sanfernandes island is a very small island, only a thousand people living there, but it was completely destroyed. that's what we found when we arriving there, debris everywhere, and as you can see that was the port and the square before, and that was after. so the change is, it's quite impressive. the same was a local pier and a school. that was a school. nothing. so we put in the navy, the navy put them in there two, three combat ships, type 23's and l ship and transport plus mtaa aircraft transport, aircraft and hell helicopters to try to help people in there. we used the ships to deliver food, clothes and all that stuff without any problem. also we helped in different matters that the navy can do that. for instance here was with divers and with submarine robot to find bodies. getting medical assistance,
be nonbinding so would act as guidelines for the u.s. government. but at the heart of the debate, how do you reduce the government's massive budget debt, and changes in taxes and spending. today the top democrat and the republican had their say. >> both sighs favor closing took loopholes that favor the wealthiest americans, and the senate thinks shouldsome revenue should be idea to tackle the deficit and invest in the middle class, not just simply cut tax rates for the rich. >> usually you can tax more and spend more and borrow more and that will somehow create growth and prosperity. i believe we have had four years of that experiment, which i fundamentally doubted and opposed from the beginning. and it hasn't worked. >> shepard: regardless of whether it's worked or hasn't, the insiders say the democratic budget will likely pass. mike emanuel is in washington. how has the vote been going and what's it like in there so far? reporter: we expect starting any moment they'll vote on a series of amendments between now and late night tonight. 25 to 40. summon hot-button issues including abortion, s
pressure being exerted by the u.s. on the iraqi government to halt that type of aid, just as the supporters of the opposition, including saudi arabia, turkey and qatar are reportedly sending more weapons and money to the rebels. chris? >> ayman, thank you. more than 70,000 dead since the start of the conflict. remarkable. thanks for your reporting. >>> and for more on the secretary's middle east trip, i'm joined by nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell, traveling with secretary kerry and was able to give us this report by phone from afghanistan. >> reporter: chris, this is secretary kerry's sixth trip to afghanistan in the last couple years. but his first as secretary. and he's got a good relationship with hamid karzai, the very eccentric president of afghanistan. and this is a mission here. the question is, is he going to play good cop or bad cop today. given the fact that karzai was so difficult the last time he visited with a top american, which was chuck hagel, of course, defense secretary. kerry has such a good relationship, he's going to try to smooth things over.
the reported 10 billion euros. he said the number has been exaggerated by the communist government, the former communist government. the officials are saying the imf nor the ecb has independently verified this figure. tyler, i have a call in to the imf. i'm awaiting their response. >>> 40% of the deposits in the cyprus banks belong to foreigners. many of whom are russian investors. robert frank here with the fallout on this. i guess it's easier for the cyprus officials to say let me take the money out rather than lay the whole cost of this bailout on cyprus' taxpayers. >> but the way they did it is surprising. cyprus is not just a tax haven for russia, it is the tax haven for russian millionaires and billionaires. russia has invested $119 billion, that's with a "brks" in cyprus in 2011 alone. that's by far the largest recipient of russian investments in the world. equal amount of investment came back to russia from cyprus. funny how that works. russian investment is five times the total economic output for cyprus. russians account for $20 billion of total bank deposits or, tyler, as you mentio
this will be perceived and that's something that our executives, and whether they're in the regular federal government or the postal service, has to take note of. that the public is watching and that they are turned off by seeing waste of taxpayer dollars or in this case, sosh service dollars. >> attendees see it another way. >> relationships and networking very important. if they just stand in their office in washington they wouldn't get the feel of what the mailers want and need in the industry because the industry's changing. technology is changing and the postal service is changing with it. >> reporter: again, the u.s. postal service spending more than 2 million dollars on exhibit space and travel expenses. that may not sound like a lot, but as one government watch dog group told me, the way you end up 16 billion dollars in debt you don't worry about a 2 million dollar expenditure. over time, harris, it all adds up. >> harris: indeed it does. thank you. and republican lawmakers stepping up calls to hear from the the survivors of the benghazi terror attacks, six months after that assault there are
in the united states. combating it requires government solutions. there's not a better time in my life when things have been as dangerous as it is today in the threats more diverse. due to the planned budget cuts, we are posed to cut our defense budget by $8 trillion in the next 10 years. we're talking about what has are to come out of the budget. another half killing would come through sequestration. it is interesting that that is the only area where this administration has been actively cutting government. it addresses the need for a national military strategy to reflect the global security environment. the military, and the growing budget, currently the current strategy as well. starting with the strategic guidance issued in january 2012. it seems that we are falling into a trap of creating strategies entirely on how quickly we can cut defense budgets rather than as a result give an honest assessment. i am very much concerned. i always thought that the major mission of the federal government is to protect the homeland. we have to get back to that mentality and recognize the threat and yo
not going to happen. >> talk about big government. >> we have to look at -- can you imagine having the ships and planes hauling off people. i agree that, you know, right now if you really look to the future, we need to have these new workers. we need them for hi-tech jobs but we need them for agricultural jobs. >> your district is a place that, you know, there's been an interesting story about, about the way immigration has worked on long island and it's changed long island in a lot of ways. places have gotten far, far more diverse quite quickly. i remember when i covered the last big immigration fight in 2006-2007, one of the hot spots was in long island partly because things had changed very quickly. there were a lot of day laborers. tensions around day laborers. what are the politics four and your district? >> the politics for me to be very honest with you and i think i have extremely intelligent constituents -- >> as does every member of congress. >> they follow what's going on as far as in the news and everything else like that. but my district, the immigration issue is so diverse. it's
, because people were looking back to nixon saying you can have a good government republic that once the government of the efficient. although under mix and it did grow. the the republican party is so different now because there is no room for nixon so there was much more interesting richard nixon's domestic agenda. everybody is interested obviously in the foreign policy side like the end of the war in vietnam. but i noticed this in the second term of the bush administration there was more interest in the domestic policy. it is a real problem for historians because of the tapes richard nixon is not always very happy about his domestic policy. i was wondering since we are looking at the earlier period for next-gen, where would you put him in the new deal in the 1950's? would you say he is interested in a continuation of the new deal? what role does he see the government playing in the society? >> certainly think he had no desire to undo the new deal. she was very much aware and in favor of a catastrophic health plan. don't forget when nixon was growing up his family was poor, but he h
will muck that up. wow. that's nice. >> they're praying for ineptitude. >> justice be governed by the fear of god. >> oh, my god. >> perkins was on one of the shows. it is great there is a show on now about him as a young man. >> who is the patron saints of ineptitude? >> sonia sotomayor was a bouncer at a bar at yale. i think she could put the fear of god into anybody. >> stephanie: was she really? >> she was. >> stephanie: she's going to break the bottle and go. >> oh, yeah. you know, it is becoming the best thing in the supreme court. [ ♪ circus ♪ ] >> stephanie: hey speak of festive news. you bring us from your home state, judge in louisiana says people convicted of violent crimes can own and carry guns. what could go wrong there? >> no, nothing at all. [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] >> i love it was because of a law, an amendment to the state constitution that they passed in louisiana last year that said that the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right and any restriction must require these highest standard of review by a court. so applying that to whether or not any
understood why the government would come in the philippines, would utilize that approach to resolve this conflict. because after all, efforts have been made to reach an agreement to come to a mutually beneficial agreement. and that had failed. and, therefore, the ability to petition and to have a resolution of this through that method was logical. and i think that the resolution of these disputes have become by nature of using the rule of law. and that dispute mechanism resolution that exists under the treaty is an effective way, as i'm explaining to this you -- explained to the now, and effective way to address this problem. because our goal and our diplomacy is based on urging governance, not just the type of nationalist rhetoric that leads to confrontation. but instead, to work multinationally and order to resolve disputes. we can see periods in the past when nations with competing claims came very close to resolution, and, unfortunately, because of nationalist voices, in both countries, we failed to achieve that opportunity to resolve a situation. and that's what i think the uni
governments the united states wants to trust, when there are difficult things, you need help from the region, it is usually turkey and syria. to have it back on a better track, not completely there, but on a better track is better for the region, israel and turkey, huge assist for the united states. >> and he pushed bb netanyahu, a stubborn man sometimes to do this. a real accomplishment for the president who set low expectations, so he exceeded low expectations they set probably deliberately. >> israel, turkey, significant achievement. he played a critical role in that. jessica, john, safe trip back to washington. >>> now the latest rounds of threats from north korea. ominously from the country supreme military command which regularly parades an arsenal of missiles and rockets through the streets of pyongyang. they claim north korea has the capacity to hit military bases in guam and japan. we have a closer look, ominous discussion there, tom. >> it is, wolf. you have to put it in context. couple weeks ago, north korea talked about putting a nuclear missile on the u.s. mainland, a lot of and
the relationship with israel, with its government in particular so that john kerry can come in and with new ideas and be received, better than some of obama's first-term ideas were received. so there is a point to this trip, but it's a building block trip. >>> jeff goldberg, thank you very much, as always. >> thank you. >>> and up next, in our "daily fix" who killed the senate assault weapons ban. >>> plus mark sanford survives round 1 in south carolina, and why is bill clinton getting involved in the kentucky democratic senate race against ashley judd? send me your thoughts on facebook and twitter. this is "andrea mitchell reports" live in israel, only on msnbc.
